Croatia and Denmark faced off in the last 16. I had tipped Croatia to advance and they did not disappoint!
Denmark drew first blood scoring within the 1st minute. Croatia replied just a couple of minutes later through Mandzukic.
We looked to be in for an exciting fixture but after these opening exchanges the match settled into a cagey affair with neither side wishing to give up anything.
The game would go to extra time and with just 4 minutes remaining Luke Modric missed a penalty that would have sealed the game being denied by a great Schmeichel save.
We eventually needed penalties to separate the 2 sides. Both Schmeichel and Subasic put on brilliant goalkeeping displays saving 2 and 3 penalties respectively, Croatia winning the shootout 3-2.
Croatia will now go on to face Russia in their first quarterfinal since the 1998 World Cup.
